To best protect our patients and staff from COVID-19, the UNC School of Nursing Mobile Health Clinic is offering limited services on site and virtual consults.

MISSION: Recognizing the impact of stress on health, we aim to promote wellness, assess those who are at risk for health problems, and assist individuals in managing chronic diseases.

Founded in 2016, the UNC School of Nursing Mobile Health Clinic provides free nursing services to meet the health care needs of clients of Wake County crisis ministries. The clinic is staffed by School of Nursing faculty who are registered nurses and nurse practitioners. A Spanish interpreter is available most weeks.
